Colorful Tibetan designs on wall and door panels of temple, Jiuzhaigou National Scenic Area, Sichuan Province, China : Stock Photo
Traditional Tibetan painting is called thangka. It is painting of a Buddha, Buddhist deity, or a mandala. Thangkas are framed in rich, colorful, silk brocades, but they are religious objects, not simply decorations. Traditionally, thangkas were created on commissions from religious devotees, and were not sold on the open market. Today, some thangka artists still work on commission. Less refined thangkas are produced in bulk for tourist markets.
